I was using Chromium until it got so big (now almost twice the disk space as that required for Firefox). Now I use Epiphany but I am looking hard at Midori.

I use Google Chrome (direct from google's web site) and it is my favorite...I think it renders better then firefox and it is faster also...And it keeps getting improved all the time...The Chrome version has a convenient built in pdf reader and built in flash player (which the open source Chromium doesn't) and it adds an automatic updater as well so you always get the latest stable version when it is released...

My webmail requires Firefox so I still use it a bit when I am in Windows (in Linux I use Evolution for my e-mail). I use Google Chrome most of the time on both OS'es.

Nother vote for google chromium. But firefox has an advantage with plug-ins. Both are good and both are installed on this comp.

I still like Firefox 4. Too many add-ons for Chromium are incomplete or don't work at all.
